Orphaned image talk pages[edit]

  • Delete all. None of the above talk pages have a corresponding image on English Wikitravel or on shared:. I didn't look at all of them (the list was generated via a SQL query), but for the ones I looked at the corresponding image has generally been deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 02:59, 27 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 15:33, 10 November 2011 (EST)

Orphaned template talk pages[edit]

Wartrol wartrol genital wart relief[edit]

Doesn't appear to be a destination.

  • Speedy delete - felix 11:44, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
It's not?? Damn, and I was thinking of heading there for Christmas break...—The preceding comment was added by Texugo (talkcontribs)
Does have a certain raw charm to it, maybe we should reconsider and not be so hasty....F—The preceding comment was added by Felix505 (talkcontribs)

Result: Speedy deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:19, 10 November 2011 (EST)

User:Phentermine[edit]

  • Speedy delete - This is a drug, not a destination. -- felix 01:13, 6 November 2011 (EST)
    • We wouldn't expect a user page to be a destination, would we? LtPowers 14:47, 6 November 2011 (EST)
      • If there is a User of Phentermine there it might be for someone... -- felix 14:23, 8 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Speedy deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:19, 10 November 2011 (EST)

User:Firminite309[edit]

  • Speedy delete, content only relates to "Learning what causes erectile dysfunction and the ways that you can fight back to enjoy more powerful and long lasting easily achieved erections" --felix 14:19, 8 November 2011 (EST)
    • These spambot-created pages shouldn't need to go on the VFD page unless there is some concern that they will be overlooked; we get about a dozen of these a day, so admins are on the lookout for them. -- Ryan • (talk) • 15:32, 8 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Speedy deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:19, 10 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Alfrito.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image of a recognizable individual. The image description says "permission has been asked", but since model releases are a gray area and this isn't a particularly good image deletion seems like the right move. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:01, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Borneoscapemap.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned map with no source specified. The (massive) text for the image description also looks suspicious as a potential copyvio. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:01, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:DSCN3657.jpg[edit]

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Map Baia Mare.gif[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image and I can't tell what's it's supposed to be. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:01, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Safari1.jpg and Image:Safari3.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Both orphaned, and both uploaded as promotional material for a tour company, something that is strongly discouraged. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:01, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Superiornorthregion.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Satellite imagery with no source provided, so this is almost certainly a copyvio. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:01, 29 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:01, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Marsala, Italy map.png[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned map with no source provided, so this is a potential copyvio. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:50, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:20, 12 November 2011 (EST)

"Sunset mirage" images from Special:Contributions/Ushlavtuman[edit]

  • Delete all. These are all images (of varying quality) of the sun setting. They are all orphaned, and since the subject matter is simply the sun setting I don't see how they would ever be usefully incorporated into Wikitravel guides - this feels more like someone's personal photo gallery, and that is specifically called out as something not to use Wikitravel for in Wikitravel:Goals and non-goals. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:50, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:20, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Makguksu & Barbecue Spicy Chicken.GIF[edit]

See this link for the image, since the ampersand in the title makes viewing difficult. Montage, GIF format, possible copyrighted promotional image, not sure whether it is uploaded here or on Shared. The ampersand in the title prevents me from finding the file page, but the image does exist, as you can see to the right.

  • Delete, but how? texugo 10:39, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
    • Use this link: [1] LtPowers 20:09, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
  • Delete. Orphaned, and a collage that is of little use for travel purposes. Note however that being a gif shouldn't cause an image to be deleted, and an image is only required to be on shared: if it was uploaded after the shared site became the preferred repository for images (2008?). -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:17, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
Sorry, I couldn't see when it was uploaded because I didn't know how to view the image page. I was just throwing out possible problems with it. I think it being a montage is enough.texugo 22:50, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
Hopefully the rumored Mediawiki upgrade will fix the ampersand issue, but in the mean time to view images with ampersands in the name the URL pattern is "http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?action=action&title=Image:Fun_%26_Games.png" where "action=action" is something like "action=view", "action=delete", "action=history", etc, and "Image:Image_%26_Name.png" is the image name with any ampersands replaced by "%26". -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:30, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
Delete. Aside from all other problems, the photo is too small and its resolution too low to be worth keeping. Ikan Kekek 00:58, 11 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:11, 14 November 2011 (EST)

Image:P7190087.JPG[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image. The current version appears to be corrupt and the previous revision is only a 134x172 thumbnail with a shadow border, so of very limited use. -- Ryan • (talk) • 18:45, 4 November 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:05, 18 November 2011 (EST)

Khajot Pakistan[edit]

Doesn't appear to be a destination.

  • Delete - texugo 09:02, 5 November 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:50, 19 November 2011 (EST)

Talk:Tips for blind and visually impaired travellers[edit]

  • Delete This talk page is orphaned (its main page is a redirect). I've move any relevant discussion to where it can hopefully be more easily located. --inas 22:04, 8 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted - Cardboardbird 03:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Dark.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image of a recognizable individual with no model release provided. Additionally, the fourth revision is corrupt and generating errors in a spidering script that I run. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:17, 10 November 2011 (EST)
  • Delete - Last call for this chap - Cardboardbird 22:34, 22 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted - Cardboardbird 03:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Wiki Pic's 01.JPG[edit]

Result: Deleted - Cardboardbird 03:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Zelena voda1.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image, and the current version appears to be corrupt. The previous version is not corrupt, but it's not entirely clear what this image is meant to illustrate so I'm not sure that saving it is worth the effort. -- Ryan • (talk) • 00:37, 11 November 2011 (EST)
  • Delete - Of no use - Cardboardbird 22:34, 22 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted - Cardboardbird 03:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Image:AF-TN-TK-IskeulNP-LakeMtn.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image, and two of the three most recent revisions appear to be corrupt. The original revision is not corrupt but it does have a prominent copyright notice on it. -- Ryan • (talk) • 00:44, 11 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted - Cardboardbird 03:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Image:View small.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image and the current version appears to be corrupt. The previous revision could potentially be salvageable if someone wants to restore it and de-orphan, but otherwise this should be deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:17, 14 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:57, 28 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Murchison Falls Uganda.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image and the current version appears to be corrupt. The previous revision could potentially be salvageable if someone wants to restore it and de-orphan, but otherwise this should be deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:28, 14 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Ch-map.png[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned map of China that has been superseded by Image:Map of China.png. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:28, 14 November 2011 (EST)
  • Delete. The other map is much better. Ikan Kekek 14:47, 25 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:57, 28 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Wikitravel - Matunuck.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image that just shows up as a white square in my browser - something got corrupted maybe? In any case, this seems like a pretty obvious delete. -- Ryan • (talk) • 19:36, 14 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 11:57, 28 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Image:A meteor at Hawaii.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image of a meteor in the night sky. This might be useful for illustration purposes on an astronomy site, but doesn't seem particularly useful for Wikitravel. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

"Green flash" images[edit]

  • Delete all. These are all orphaned, and while they might be good for illustration purposes on a photography web site they don't seem relevant for use on Wikitravel. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Images from Special:Contributions/Lbschu24[edit]

  • Delete all. No sources are specified, there are tons of matches on Google image searches for these images, and the variety of image sizes and quality strongly suggests copyvios. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted all. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Imagem1.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Collage image with no source specified, so this is a likely copyvio. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Superpalmresortbelizeguideq. html m439aa5c1.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image of a non-notable hotel, something that is discouraged per shared:Image policy#Photos of businesses. Additionally, the image filename is likely to make baby Jesus cry. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Image:Yardley.png[edit]

  • Delete. Orphaned image that appears to have been taken from some sort of mapping software. There is no source specified, so this is almost certainly a copyvio. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:26, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:44, 30 November 2011 (EST)
